I was wondering if attorneys are allowed to keep charging money even after termination. The situation is this: a lawyer has been terminated. A new lawyer has been retained and he/she has filed notice of appearance and whatever. If before the previous lawyer shows the client a detailed bill of the charges per hour/min, and charges the client, will they be allowed to continue adding to the charges every though a new lawyer has been retained? The extra charges would be under correspondences where the client may continue to communicate with the lawyer to demand said detailed bill.
My apologies if anything doesn't really make sense. Please advise, thanks in advance.
